Scrapbook Layouts

I met a wonderful group of gals at a crop called Scrapgirls Express. We meet every other month for a day and a half crop. It's only about a dozen of us, and we have so much fun. Here is what I got done last weekend when I was there.

As you saw in a previous post, I got this adorable picture of Eli sitting in a chair. It was the first one I scrapbooked when I went to a crop last weekend. The background is from my Debbie Mumm calendar last year...I knew as soon as I saw it, I would use it in Eli's scrapbook, because it's the exact colors I use with most of his pages!

(this LO is a scraplift from hannakj at
Tina shows Eli his flashcards when she is here, along with exercises, stretches, and a she does a feeding. She has been such a blessing to us. I am scrapbooking another page with a great picture of her and Eli and it will tell more about what an angel she is to us.

We never really get any pictures of Eli with his gifts BEFORE we open them for him. So, this year, when his Grandpa Jerry brought his presents over I decided to snap a few. It turned out great that he had his blue pj's on and the gifts were wrapped in blue. I've had these fun snowman and tree stickers for a while now, just waiting for the perfect LO to use them on!

Eli doesn't care for me to read to him. One evening Lon was holding him, and I handed him the book Goodnight Moon. (yeah - AFTER I glued the letters down on my LO, I realized goodnight is one word, not two. oh well.) Eli sat there contently listening, and it was so cute. This story will go on the moon....someday when I get around to it. :)
The adorable little red cheeck was because he was fighting a little bug...and sometimes it comes out on his cheeks when he is getting sick. He looks like a raggedy andy doll. I think I said that already when I may have posted this picture on my blog last summer.???
